You may already know that we track box score stats for the NBA D-League, meaning that you can keep an eye on the progress of prospects, potential future NBA players, and post-hype sleepers who play in the NBA's minor league. However, in addition to basic stats like points and rebounds, we've also started tracking advanced stats for all D-Leaguers. That includes numbers like PER, BPM, WS, and USG%, among others. So, for example, you can see that right now, Erick Green leads all D-Leaguers in WS:

As we work our way back on digitizing older college basketball statistics, we're happy to announce that we now have digitized team and opponent stats for the 1995-96 College Basketball season. This is in addition to the player stats we added a few weeks back.
These sortable tables allow users to easily see that the dominant 1995-96 Kentucky Wildcats led the nation in steals and assists. And that (no shocker here), UNC opponents never took any free throws. Also, let's not forgot about the impact of Keith "The Boss" Closs at CCSU.

Thanks to the research of Sean Burrill, we're happy to announce that we now have complete box scores for the 1984 NBA Playoffs, and mostly complete box scores for the 1983 NBA Playoffs. Previously, these box scores were mostly restricted to player scoring and shooting statistics.
Additionally, 1984 Playoff games are now searchable in the Play Index. For instance, here's a list of triple-doubles in the 1984 Playoffs and most 3-pointers made by a team in 1984 Playoff games.
1983 Playoff box scores are also updated, but not searchable in the Play Index because we're missing some statistics from these games (please contact us if you are able to fill in any of these gaps):

The NBA season is in full swing so our playoff and MVP probabilities pages are live. The playoff probabilities project the odds a team has of making the playoffs; while the MVP projections show the likelihood a given player has of winning MVP if voting happened today. On the playoff side, it looks like the Rockets and Pelicans are in trouble, while the Suns and Celtics are early season surprises. Sixers and Lakers fans can also track their odds of winning the lottery. Here's more info on how the projections are made and where we get the projected draft order from.
Oh, and as far as MVP goes, Stephen Curry is really really good

With college hoops tipping off today, we thought we'd quickly note an offseason addition to our Frivolities section: Historical AP #1 Losses. This table contains the date, score and coaches for every game in which the top-ranked team in the AP Poll lost. Additionally, we have links to the box scores for each of the games since 2010-11, and all of the games which occurred in the NCAA Tournament. We have the arena listed for most of these games, and hope to flesh out that data further soon.

With an unprecedented three 8-0 teams tearing through the NFL, we thought it would be a good time to introduce a new frivolity to the site: a list of the last unbeaten team(s) for every season in NFL history (as well as AFL, AAFC and APFA history). The list represents the teams which won the most games before suffering their first loss (not necessarily the last team standing with 0 losses in a given season) and includes playoff games (when necessary). The table includes a link to each teams' first loss (unless you're the 1972 Dolphins, that is), as well as their season record (including postseason) and their postseason result (bearing in mind that the NFL postseason dates only back to 1933). A quick glance at the list shows us that the only team since 2000 to win the Super Bowl after being the last remaining undefeated team was the 2006 Colts. Armed with this knowledge, the Bengals, Panthers and Patriots will surely be rushing to lose a game, A.S.A.P. No need to thank us, though.
We hope you enjoy this new list.

We just wanted to make a quick announcement that we've added a table with all player salaries for the 2015-16 season. This data was previously available on player and team pages, but it's now available as a sortable list with the salaries and cap hits for all players in the league season. This data is accessible from our frivolities page.
